    Default Political thread(s)

    I'm thinking that this is going to get out of hand real fast. So what do you guys think of three stickies to discuss everything political until the General Election passes? One for the Democratic side of the forum, one for the Republican side of the forum, ... and the independents get screwed because their thread will be non-partisan and contain all the other shenanigans that don't lend themselves to the 'phants and 'keys. I'll merge all current existing threads (from the last six weeks or so) into those threads if this idea takes flight. I don't want to see this forum overrun with political threads but I don't want to ignore probably the most important election the world has seen in the last half century or so.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    2 is enought.

    -Elections thread
    -World/America politic thread.

    I see no need or care for a Republican/Democrats thread

    I agree with R3dKnight - one election thread and one world affairs one. The latter can get everything from war to housing.

    An election thread would be good, but I must confess that I'm slightly skeptical to to idea of an general world politics thread. Because in world politics there tends to be many possible topics of discussion at the same time. Therefore a single thread for all the potential discussions might end up as a cluttered mess.

    Thus I would support the idea of a single election thread, but keep the general political discussion contained in separate threads for each topic. And it's only recently that the political threads have begun popping up anyway. Generally there isn't that much political discussion, so in the long term a sticky may prove rendundant.

    I don't think you can contain all of that stuff into one thread.

    Besides, I feel majority of the people here are more Independent people... aka the "swing vote" type of person with no true loyalties to one side or the other. Right now though, I'd imagine most who can vote would chose Obama... he's more appealing to the younger population and he seems different. Quite frankly, most cannot stand Bush so they would never want to vote for another Republican.

    That's how I see it right now so I think a whole Republicans only type of thread would be useless in the long run.

    While we're on the idea of combining threads, surely we could simply have one murder thread. At least once a week someone posts something about an aimless murder or alike. We've got the family munching on their kid thread now.
